Prenatal Yoga 6 Week Series
w/ Leanne Matullo, E-RYT, RPYT
Tuesday, November 14 - Tuesday, December 19, 2017
Bring your partners/spouses on Tuesday, December 5!
7:oo - 8:15 p.m.
During a prenatal yoga session, we will:
- Address any aches or concerns, and apply therapeutic applications to support your changing body (i.e. alleviating nausea, backache, swelling, round ligament pain, and more)
- Move through poses and breathing techniques that prepare your body for labor, strengthen and lengthen muscles, optimize the pelvic floor, improve digestion and circulation, exercise the spine, and increase overall comfort
- Briefly explore themes for each class, including laboring positions, hormones involved in birth, building a team of support, and more
- Connect with other women in an atmosphere that's warm, safe, and fun!
Each session will include 15 minutes of conversation to start class, followed by a 50 minute yoga session and end with a deep relaxation. On Tuesday, December 5, bring your spouses and partners to a special partner prenatal practice! We'll move through a yoga flow together, practice breathing techniques to aid in labor, learning laboring positions, practice adjustments and light massage to support your pregnancy and birth experience.

POSTnatal Yoga Class w/Leanne Matullo
Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 12:00 - 1:00 pm
Body after baby is...different. And, mamas, it’s beautiful. You’re beautiful. And, you likely are craving some postpartum support in the movement department. POSTnatal Yoga will reacquaint you with your body after undergoing a transformational experience - physically, mentally, and emotionally. Learn how to safely restore your core. Practice exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor post-delivery (this is essential!). Open up the shoulders and chest after so much baby carrying and feeding. Enjoy your body in this class focused on safely restoring function, muscle strength, and flexibility.
Feel free to bring your babies! Babies can nap in their carseats, hang out on a playmat, recline on your mat, etc. Note: This is not Baby & Me, but a chance for you to get out of the house, meet other women, and MOVE. You are welcome to nurse if baby is hungry during class. $17 drop-in // Limited to 8 women for the first class. // Suitable for women 6-8+ weeks postpartum. Please honor your body.
